Loving the Green on Houseplant Appreciation Day!

afm1Everything should be celebrated, and that includes houseplants, which now have their own celebration day on January 10th.

It’s a perfect way to recognize the natural beauty and unique look that green and flowering plants have as well as take the leap into getting your own and learning how to care for them.afm2

While you may think it requires a green thumb, houseplants are really quite easy to take care of.

All you need to do is focus on light, water, temperature, and fertilizer.

To help you out, we have provided a comprehensive plant care guide that gives you various tips on different types of green and blooming plants.

Here is a brief description of some of the plant care tips we provide:

  • Dish gardens, which typically come in some type of planter and includes a number of green plants, typically focus on a combination of low light level plants that share growing condition preferences, including moist soil. Some of these dish gardens offer both green and blooming plants that like moderate temperature and feed on regular green plant fertilizer.afm4
  • Blooming plants include kalanchoe, mum plants, violets, begonia and others that bloom with color at certain points in the year. They like moist soil and indirect bright light.
  • Green plants include corn plants, rubber plants, dracaena, ficus, philodendron and pothos as well as other similar varieties. They like moderate moisture and temperature as well as indirect bright light.
  • Orchids have their own unique fertilizer to use plus they need to be watered at least twice a week. They also like to have their foliage misted with a water bottle.afm3

Be sure to come check out our green and blooming plant display in our Long Beach flower shop or you can view some of our green plant offering through our website.

We also have basket gardens and succulent plants along with indoor green plants for the home or office, blooming plants, and dish gardens.
